Open Graph Apps Exploding – Are the Jobs Here?


Open Graph Apps Explod­ing – Are the Jobs Here?

The Genie is out of the lamp, with Open Graph soft­ware devel­op­ment jobs con­tin­u­ing their expan­sion and 1,675,685 sites using this tech­nol­o­gy. It is like­ly that a mul­ti­tude of devel­op­ers are at this very minute mobi­liz­ing to add Open Graph to their per­son­al toolk­its. Scores of ads for Java and Face­book devel­op­ers, Web devel­op­ers and Front end Engi­neers are being post­ed. Many of these require Open Graph expe­ri­ence. So it’s def­i­nite­ly advis­able to get start­ed with Open Graph pro­to­col by imple­ment­ing it on a web­site. Face­book has pro­vid­ed doc­u­men­ta­tion, which is avail­able to everyone.

The Open Graph pro­to­col can trans­form any web page into an inde­pen­dent rich object in a social graph. It enables any web page to have iden­ti­cal func­tion­al­i­ty to that of oth­er Face­book objects. The great­est users of Open Graph are news, shop­ping and busi­ness sites.Many pop­u­lar appli­ca­tions have imple­ment­ed Open Graph. A small sam­ple includes Foodspot­ting, Spo­ti­fy, eBay, Graph­tree, Zyn­ga, Goodreads and Ticketmaster.

One appli­ca­tion with a wide scope is Graph­tree, devel­oped by a Finnish com­pa­ny. It incor­po­rates iOS and Android oper­at­ing sys­tems with prod­ucts like Foursquare, Wikipedia, Yelp and oth­er tools to pro­vide geo­graph­ic ser­vices for Open Graph sites like Zil­low and Expe­dia. It can help users famil­iar­ize them­selves with real-estate or help those who are mov­ing to a new loca­tion. Graftree can even give you real-time instruc­tions on how to get some­where using your smartphone.

Spo­ti­fy is a ver­sa­tile musi­cal app that is also Open Graph. It can inte­grate with Tick­et­mas­ter to let you know where con­certs will be held local­ly. It can even help you make pay­ments and give you directions.

Foodspot­ting lets you share your food expe­ri­ences with friends and fam­i­ly. When you go trav­el­ling, your Foodspot­ting appli­ca­tion will let you know when any of your asso­ciates have eat­en near­by, and what good things were on the menu.

Goodreads is an exam­ple of suc­cess­ful Open Graph enhance­ment. Goodreads is a pri­vate Web based com­pa­ny. Avail­able as a web­site and mobile app, it helps peo­ple share and dis­cuss books. Their intent with Open Graph was to increase user par­tic­i­pa­tion. The new fea­tures enabled users to rate and rec­om­mend books very eas­i­ly. This infor­ma­tion also con­tributes to read­ing time­lines. Since releas­ing the new Open Graph update, more than 6 mil­lion new books have been rat­ed and active users have increased by 77%.

Imple­ment­ing Open Graph in a web or pro­file page can pro­mote a con­stant online presence.

Zucker­berg wants Face­book to take on more of a real world role. He has imag­ined that Face­book infor­ma­tion will be avail­able to your vehi­cle. Things like your favorite music, restau­rants and address books should be acces­si­ble anytime.

Open Graph is yet anoth­er part of Facebook’s evo­lu­tion from a web­site into an oper­at­ing sys­tem. Face­book is accel­er­at­ing its approval of Open Graph appli­ca­tions and they are tak­ing on a crit­i­cal role in the direc­tion of the prod­uct as a whole. New jobs will result.
